I have been a science teacher at TJHS since 2002. I have taught physical science, applied chemistry, academic chemistry, and AP chemistry. I have also mentored students participation in PJAS from 1999-2010. Before coming to TJHS, I taught for two years at Seton LaSalle High School and worked as an Undergraduate Teaching Assistant at the University of Pittsburgh from 1995-1999 under Dr. Michael Golde. I have a BS in Chemistry and my secondary science teaching certification, both from the University of Pittsburgh. Besides my love of chemistry and teaching, I am a mom of 2, an avid baker, and serious scrapbooker.
